The Goat Shed
Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This stone-built, semi-detached barn conversion is situated in the rural hamlet of High Normanby, close to the pretty villages of Fylingthorpe and Robin Hood's Bay. Retaining much of its original character, this former goat barn has been loving renovated and now boasts a wealth of exposed timber, flagged floors and a beautiful vaulted ceiling. Decorated and furnished to a very high standard, the property provides light and airy accommodation, perfectly situated for access to the coast. The living space in the cottage consists of a double bedroom, a fitted kitchen with dining area and a lounge with sofa-bed and electric stove. This wonderful little property makes a great place for a young family.

Northern England region
The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.
With its narrow, cobbled streets and quaint cottages, Robin Hood's Bay is one of the most picturesque villages on the English coastline. Located between the thriving towns of Scarborough and Whitby, this charming fishing village is set at the edge of a sweeping bay backed by impressive cliffs and dramatic moorland. All visitors will love the beach and its cliff top walks, whilst more serious climbers can enjoy the many long distance trails that pass through the town such as the Cleveland Way, the Lyke Wake Walk and the Coast to Coast walks. The village amenities are superb and with charming alleyways to explore and plenty of places to rest, this makes a great location all year round.
